That is true especially later on in his career, but he did have a great defence/ offence in his prime. I was thinking maybe if a fighter has a great defence/offence then you could class him as elite.

i suppose they are great, but elite means cream of the crop. u need speed and power to potentially become elite. to become elite, you must add the brains along with it.

But what about the ability to adjust in fights, like Mayweather can? Is that also necessary as well?

For example:
Mayweather: A
Tyson: B+?

yes but i think a fighter that could hold his own in any generation suggests he would have these abilities.

good point. Im trying to put together a mini ATG list, but I was having trouble defining top fighters. What about Hopkins, Jones and Toney what grade would you give those guys?

Elite to me means top talented fighters. World champions. Fighters people notice. Fighters that matter when you look at future fights. Those fighters that you listed fit that category.
